FC Arsenal vs Atletico Madrid Soccer Prediction Today
Arsenal are under pressure from all remaining teams in the Europa League. Because: About the Premier League, the “Gunners” no longer have a chance to qualify for the Champions League. At the moment, the Wenger protégés are in sixth place, with which they should at best start again in the Europa League, as the FA Cup winner will probably be represented on the championship internationally. All the more important was a successful dress rehearsal for the Thursday game. Against West Ham United was celebrated in the “small” London Derby a clear 4-1 victory, so you have in the league after all, after all, something consolidate. Before that, they had lost 2-1 to Newcastle, with Southampton (3-2), Stoke City (3-0) and Watford (3-0) always in the lead. Especially on the offensive, it was for the Londoners last again as desired. However, a serious staff restriction has to be made here on Thursday. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang will also not play in the semi-final, as he was already in action for BVB before moving to London and is therefore not eligible to play. Bitter, because the Gabonese is in terms of hit rate the clear number one in Arsenal’s squad: In 9 games he has delivered 6 goals and 3 assists, was therefore involved in each game on average in a single hit. We see strengths in the home side especially in the physical area, de facto Arsenal is the team that could decide in the Europa League on average so far the most aerial duels for themselves. Especially against a robust team like Atlético certainly no disadvantage. Also in terms of possession you belong to the top 3 of the previous Europa League season. The fact that the domestic Emirates Stadium can be regarded as an advantage for Arsenal is out of the question for us. Because: The Premier League statistics show that Arsenal has celebrated 14 out of 17 (!) Victories at home at home, could also achieve 49 goals in these games. For comparison: Only get out 17 (!). In addition to Aubameyang on Thursday, however, even the injured Elneny and Cazorla fail fixed, even Cech, Wilshere and Mikhitaryan are currently at least questionable. Strong: Arsenal have scored at least 2 goals in 6 of the last 7 Europa League games and will probably need them on Thursday to get a good start of the second leg.
Atlético Madrid have been disappointing in the Champions League this season. All the more successful was the switch to the UEFA Europa League. The Madrilenians presented themselves particularly on the defensive again extremely stable. The fact is that you did not have to concede more than one goal in any single Europa League match this season. That also can be won abroad, showed the results against FC Copenhagen (4: 1) or Lok Moscow (5: 1). So far, you’ve been a power at home anyway, not even conceding 3 goals in 3 matches. That Atlético is not unbeatable, Sporting Lisbon has shown in the quarter-final second leg: The Madrid have lost 1-0 in Portugal. However, an opponent like Arsenal plays the team of Diego Simeone in the cards. Because: The “Gunners” will try to make the game against home-safe scenery, which will allow Atlético spaces for quick switching, which is the Table 2. In La Liga almost mastered to perfection. That even a top team can get problems showed the last results in the Spanish championship. On Sunday, they had to settle for Betis Sevilla with a 0-0 draw, before it was against Real Sociedad even the highest season defeat cashed, they lost straight with 0: 3. Two unreleased matches seem to be reminiscent of the autumn Champions League, when Atlético scored only 5 goals in 6 group games. In La Liga they have also conceded all defeats of the season in a foreign country, 4 in number and also holds away from home already with 14 goals. After 17 matches, they are still top scorers, but 10 more than in their own stadium. Personnel we see slight advantages for the guests, we are currently only 3 failures known. These involve Diego Costa, Juanfran and Filipe Luis, which will be especially in the defense two important players will not be available. The fact that they are always good for a goal despite having two games in succession without scoring a goal is shown by the 19 goals this season by superstar Antoine Griezmann, with Correa and Gameiro Atlético still has one or the other weapon. In terms of betting tip, the Spaniards are equally likely to score less than 2.5 goals. The fact is: in 12 international games played this season, this value was not exceeded 8 times.
